Description

    RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • The present application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/502,715, filed Jun. 29, 2011, which is incorporated hereby by reference in its entirety.
  • THE FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to Dutch ovens. More specifically, the present invention relates to a Dutch oven with an improved handle assembly.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Dutch ovens have been used as cooking vessels for hundreds of years. A Dutch oven is a heavy cooking pot, usually cast iron, with an attached handle and a lipped, tight-fitting lid. Although Dutch oven cooking can be done using a conventional oven or cook top, Dutch oven cooking is often done outdoors using a camp stove, a wood fire, or using charcoal briquettes.
  • To facilitate placing the Dutch oven into a given heat source, Dutch ovens often include one or more handles fixedly attached to the pot. Traditional Dutch Ovens often included a bale handle, whereas, more modern styled Dutch ovens may have one or more loop handles that can be used to grasp and hold the Dutch oven. One drawback of having a handle that remains attached to the Dutch oven, however, is that the handle is heated by the heat source along with the pot while food is being cooked. Thus, the handle becomes hot, making it difficult to grasp to remove the oven from the heat source.
  • To remove the Dutch oven from a heat source, a person will often use a glove or pad to insulate their hand from the hot handle. Depending on the temperature of the handle, however, gloves or pad may not provide sufficient insulation making grasping of the handle uncomfortable and/or the person's hand may become burnt. If grasping the handle becomes too painful, the person may even loosen his grip on the handle risking dropping the Dutch oven or spilling its contents.
  • Alternatively, tools have been used to facilitate removal of Dutch ovens from a heating source, such as a long handled hooked lid remover or long handled pliers. Such tools, however, do not always provide for secure grasping of the Dutch oven or control of the Dutch oven when transporting it from the heat source. Thus a person using a tool to remove or transport a hot Dutch oven may risk injury to herself or himself, or to people nearby, if the Dutch oven is dropped. Furthermore, when camping or cooking outdoors it may be inconvenient to carry additional tools for cooking.
  • Thus there is a need for a Dutch oven with an improved handle assembly.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It is an object of the present invention to provide a Dutch oven with an improved handle assembly.
  • According to one aspect of the present invention, a Dutch oven may include a lid with a receiver thereon and a handle. The handle may removably engage the receiver and be used to move the Dutch oven to and from a heat source.
  • According to another aspect of the present invention, the handle may be constructed from any suitable heat resistant material.
  • According to another aspect of the present invention, the receiver of a Dutch oven lid may include arms that form a slot and the handle may slidably engage the slot.
  • According to another aspect of the present invention, the receiver of a Dutch oven lid may include a recess so that when the handle is removably engaged with the receiver and used to lift the Dutch oven, the handle is disposed in the recess of the receiver.
  • According to another aspect of the present invention, a Dutch oven pot may have one or more retaining members and the lid may have one or more grooves generally shaped to allow the lid to be lowered on to the pot when the grooves are in alignment with the retaining members. The lid also may include an outer flange which is disposed below the one or more retaining members when the lid is placed on the pot so that rotation of the lid causes the outer flange engage the retaining members to secure the lid to the pot.
  • These and other aspects of the present invention are realized in a Dutch oven with an improved handle assembly as shown and described in the following figures and related description.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • The invention and accompanying drawings will now be discussed in reference to the numerals provided therein so as to enable one skilled in the art to practice the present invention. The drawings and descriptions are exemplary of various aspects of the invention and are not intended to narrow the scope of the appended claims.
  • Turning now to FIG. 1, a side view of a Dutch oven, generally indicated at 10, with an improved handle assembly made according to principles of the present invention is shown. The Dutch oven 10 may include a pot 20 with one or more retaining members 24. The retaining members are configured to selectively secure lid 30 to pot 20 when the Dutch oven 10 is in use. Lid 30 may include a receiver 40 formed thereon. The receiver 40 may be cast as part of lid 30, however, it will be appreciated that receiver may be formed separately and attached to lid 30 using other methods, such as bolts, screws, welding, etc.
  • The receiver 40 may be configured to receive a handle 50 which may have a vertical grasping structure 56 disposed on a base 54 which extends generally perpendicular to the grasping structure 56. Handle 50 may be cast iron or may also be constructed from any suitable heat resistant material. For example, handle 50 may be constructed from a heat resistant plastic having a lower rate of thermal transfer via heat conduction to thereby ensure that the handle 50 does not become uncomfortably hot during removal and transport of Dutch oven 10.
  • Arms 44 of receiver 40 may form an open slot 60 on at least one end of the receiver 40 and be configured to receive handle 50. As shown in FIG. 1, the shape of slot 60 may be generally complimentary to at least a portion of handle 50, which forms a generally upside down T shape, allowing handle 50 to be removably engaged with receiver 40. It will appreciated that handle 50 and slot 60 may be a variety of shapes so long as handle 50 can be removably engaged with receiver 40.
  • By holding the grasping member 56 and sliding base 54 into engagement with slot 60 lid 30 may be lifted and placed on to pot 20. Lid 30 may include one or more grooves or notches (not shown in FIG. 1) which may align with the one or more retaining members 24 on pot 20 to allow lid 30 to be lowered onto pot 20 until one or more outer flange 34 is disposed below retaining members 24. Handle 50 may then be rotated so that outer flange 34 engages retaining members 24 to secure lid 30 to pot 20. Handle 50 may then be used to place Dutch oven 10 into a heating source. Once Dutch oven 10 is placed in the heating source, handle 50 may be removed from slot 60 so that it will not be exposed to heat while Dutch oven 10 remains in the heating source. Thus, Dutch oven 10 may be safer to transport than prior art Dutch ovens having attached handles.
  • When it is desired to remove Dutch oven 10 from the heating source, the cool handle 50 may be placed in slot 60 and used to lift Dutch oven 10 from the heating source. Lid 30 may be removed from pot 20 by rotating lid 30 so that the one or more grooves are generally in alignment with the one or more retaining members 24. Lid 30 may then be lifted off of pot 20.
  • Turning now to FIG. 2, there is shown a close-up perspective view of a disassembled Dutch oven handle assembly, generally indicated at 100. The slot 60 formed by arms 44 in receiver 40 is more clearly shown. The handle 50 may be removably engaged with receiver 40 by sliding handle 50 into slot 60 as indicated by arrow 70. According to one aspect of the present invention, a receiver 40 may include a recess 64 so that when the handle 50 is fully inserted in receiver 40 and then used to lift the Dutch oven 10, handle 50 nests in recess 64 thereby securing the handle 50 in receiver 40 during transport as can be seen in FIG. 3. Once the Dutch oven is placed in a desired location, such as a heating source, handle 50 can be lowered out of recess 64 and slid back out of slot 60 so that handle 50 is not exposed to heat from the heating source. The receiver 40 further includes one or more ash windows 74 on one or more sides of the receiver and or on the back end of the receiver 40. The slot ash windows 74 are configured to allow ash that has collected in the slot 60 to be removed by a user or be pushed out by the handle 50 or handle base 54. This allows the slot 60 to remain free of obstruction for ease of insertion of the handle 50.
  • FIGS. 4 through 6 show how the lid 30 of a Dutch oven 10 of the present invention may be secured to pot 20. Lid 30 may include one or more grooves or notches 80 in flange 34 generally shaped so that lid 30 may be placed on to a pot 20 having one or more retaining members 24, as is shown in FIG. 5. Lid 30 may have an outer flange 34 which is disposed below the one or more retaining members 24 when lid 30 is placed on to pot 20 with the grooves or notches 80 aligned with the one or more retaining members 24. Rotation of lid 30 by about 45 degrees relative to the one or more retaining members 24, as indicated by arrow 78 (FIG. 5), once the lid 30 has been placed on the pot 20, moves outer flange 34 into engagement with the one or more retaining members 24. When outer flange 34 and the one or more retaining members 24 are engaged, lid 30 is secured to pot 20 and Dutch oven 10 may be transported by engaging handle 50 (FIGS. 1-3) in slot 60 of receiver 40. It will be appreciated that rotating the lid less than 45 degrees or more than 45 degrees may also allow for engagement of the outer flange 34 of lid 30 with the one or more retaining members 24, as engagement may occur when the grooves 80 are no longer aligned with the retaining members 24.
  • In one embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 4-6, the lid 30 has an interior surface 84 recessed below rim 86 disposed radially outward from the receiver 40. The recessed interior surface 84 allows a heat source to be maintained on the top of lid 30, thereby providing further heat to the contents of pot 20. For example, the recessed interior surface 84 can hold charcoal briquettes, wood, and hot coals, and recessed interior surface also prevents ashes or the heat source from falling off while moving the Dutch oven or lid, and prevents ashes or the heat source from spilling over the edge of lid 30 and entering the pot 20 when lid 30 is removed from pot 20 with the use of the handle 50. The recessed interior surface 84 may also be configured to allow additional Dutch ovens 10 to be stacked on top of one another with the handle 50 engaged in slot 60. The recessed interior surface 84 provides the necessary clearance for stacking. The rim 86 of the lid 30 may also have a notch 90 formed therein to allow any contents of the recessed interior surface 84, such as ashes, to be cleaned out of the recessed interior surface 84 without the need to remove the lid 30 from the pot 20 or turn the lid 30 upside down or at an angle at the risk of burning the person cleaning the lid 30. The notch 90 may be only as deep as the recessed interior surface 84. In another possible embodiment (not shown), the rim 86 and flange 34 are one and the same, i.e. recessed interior surface 84 is recessed below the upper surface of flange 34.
  • After Dutch oven 10 has been placed in a heating source, the handle may be removed from slot 60 in receiver 40 and stored away from the heating source to ensure that it remains cool and easy to grasp for later removal of Dutch oven 10 from the heating source. To remove the Dutch oven 10 from the heating source, the cool handle 50 may be reinserted into slot 60 and used to lift the Dutch oven 10.
  • FIGS. 7-9 show another embodiment of the present invention wherein a lid 130 has one or more receivers 140 configured to receive and engage a removable handle 150. Receivers 140 include an arm 144 extending over lid 130 to receive and engage handle 150, with a lip 154 on the end of the arm 144 for securing the handle 150 under or within arm 144. The lip 154 creates a groove underneath the arm 144 for engaging and securing the handle 150 in receiver 144. In one embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 7-9, the shape of the receivers 140 may be a hook, but it should be appreciated that the shape of the receivers 140 may be any shape that engages a handle as described herein. The receivers 140 may be formed as part of the lid 130 when the lid 130 is cast, or may be attached separately, such as by screw, bolt, or other fastening device known to those of skill in the art.
  • Handle 150 generally comprises any device having a lower portion 160 designed to engage with receivers 140, and a grasping structure 164 for a person to grasp. For example, the figures show a handle 150 in the shape of a rectangle, wherein the lower portion 160 of the rectangle engages in the receivers 140, allowing a user to grasp the handle 150 by the grasping structure 164 and move the lid 130 and/or the Dutch oven. Handle 150 may be cast iron or may also be constructed from any suitable heat resistant material. For example, handle 150 may be constructed from a heat resistant plastic having a lower rate of thermal transfer via heat conduction to thereby ensure that the handle 150 does not become uncomfortably hot during removal and transport of Dutch oven 10.
  • As shown in FIG. 9, handle 150 can be engaged in receivers 140 by placing the lower portion 160 below the grooves of the receivers 140 and then lifting the handle 150, by using the grasping structure 164, so that the lower portion 160 engages in the grooves. The handle 150 can then be used to lift and transport the lid 130, and if the 130 lid is secured to the pot as described above by retaining members, then the entire Dutch oven. It will be appreciated that handle 150 and receivers 140 may be a variety of shapes so long as handle 150 can be removably engaged with receiver 140.
  • There is thus disclosed a Dutch oven with an improved handle assembly. It will be appreciated that numerous changes may be made to the present invention without departing from the scope of the claims.
